Today I finally met Amberlyn, my Pencil Pal for this school year at Hawaiian Avenue Elementary School in Wilmington! We had a blast talking to each other for the first time after exchanging letters all year. We played Connect Four and ate pizza in the school courtyard, and chatted with the rest of Amberlyn’s class. Being a PencilPAL, or a BookPAL (reading to a classroom for at least one hour a week) is a hugely rewarding experience.
